Tell us about yourself
I’m 19 years old and a senior at the University of Texas at San Antonio, living a few minutes down the road. I’m a Biology major and am ideally working towards a PhD in Integrative Biology based in oceanography. I participated in GEMS for three summers. During quarantine, I adopted a borderline-obsession with fermentation which is my new hobby. I’m hoping my experience on the Council will help me gain more personal and professional connections. I want to develop my networking abilities and learn to better showcase my leadership skills.
